VC Orb Strangeness in WIN 10

Postby gabster on 01/13/2019, 6:18 pm

Hi gang!

So I went successfully through Andrew's whole tutorial on a Mac, but when trying to do the same on a WIN10 machine, I got stuck at 3:23 in his tutorial (https://youtu.be/iT12Q9O-Q30?t=203), since the light is having no effect over the orb whatsoever (orb remains its default blank white color look).
Moreover when trying to add Planet_4K.jpg to the diffused layer in the plugin makes my whole orb disappears.

I feel like there's a hidden default global setting I am missing somewhere. Does anyone have an idea what this can be?

Thanks!
Gabi

Ok, a little development after installing the latest drivers for my GeForce GTX 1070 card. I can apply the texture to the diffusion layer in VC ORB, but the light layer has absolutely no effect wherever I move the source. I can see the specular spot on the orb's surface but it doesn't move at all whenever I am trying to re-position the light.

Hmm...
Thanks!

I'm on a Windows 10 laptop with GTX 1070, works fine.

Which version of AE are you using?

I am using CC2018 -

And I discovered a thing. I need to add a point light to have it working. I was adding a parallel light and that's why it didn't effect the orb.
Thanks for help!

cheers!
